Posted Nov 30, 2005
Cannon, the 25th Tulane player to earn first-team All-Conference USA honors, finished his career with 437 career tackles to rank third all-time in Conference USA in tackles and fourth on the Tulane school charts. He made 114 tackles in 10 games this season to record his fourth consecutive 100-tackle season, the first Tulane player to do so since Mike Staid (1991-94).
NEW ORLEANS –
(Stone Mountain, Ga.) capped off a record-setting career by becoming the first Green Wave linebacker ever named first team All-Conference USA Tuesday as he led a group of six Tulane players honored by the league. In addition to Cannon’s first team selection, senior offensive tackle
(Beaumont, Texas) was named to the second team while offensive guard
(Coral Gables, Fla.) and wide receiver
(Camden, N.J.) earned third-team All C-USA recognition. Tulane freshmen
(OG, Thibodaux, La.) and
(WR, Baton Rouge, La.) were both named to the Conference USA All-Freshman squad.
Cannon, the 25th Tulane player to earn first-team All-Conference USA honors, finished his career with 437 career tackles to rank third all-time in Conference USA in tackles and fourth on the Tulane school charts. He made 114 tackles in 10 games this season to record his fourth consecutive 100-tackle season, the first Tulane player to do so since Mike Staid (1991-94). Cannon ranks sixth all-time at Tulane in solo tackles with 235 and is second in career assists with 202. His 29 tackles for loss put him fifth on the Green Wave career TFL chart. He tallied 24 double-figure tackle games during his career. In 2005, he led Tulane in tackles with 114 and in tackles for loss with 12.5. His five pass break-ups tied for the team lead.
Cannon earned third-team All Conference USA recognition last season and was an All-Freshman honoree in 2002.
McGee, Tulane’s top lineman in each of the last three years, started 47 consecutive games for the Green Wave at left tackle. A third-team all-league choice in 2003, McGee was also a member of the All-Freshman team in 2002. Right beside McGee for each of those 47 starts was left guard Matt Traina, an academic all-district selection in each of the last three years, who picked up all-conference recognition for the first time in his career.
Brown, meanwhile, became an impact player for the Wave in his junior season. He entered the season without a career catch but finished the year as Tulane’s leading receiver with 47 catches for 720 yards and six touchdowns to average 15.3 yards per catch and 65.5 receiving yards per game while starting all 11 games. He made an immediate impact with a season-high nine catches for 117 yards versus
and caught a season-long 68-yard touchdown pass in the Rice game.
Koch, a first-team all-state choice and the Baton Rouge Advocate’s Offensive Player of the Year a season ago, landed a spot on the Conference USA All-Freshman team after catching 23 passes for 308 yards and a pair of scores for Tulane in 2005. He was joined on the All-Rookie team by Parenton, who started every game at right guard for the Wave as a redshirt freshman.
The All-Conference USA and C-USA All-Freshman Teams were selected by a vote of the league’s 12 head coaches and media representatives in each conference city. To view the complete teams, go to www.conferenceusa.com.
